As I was getting ready this morning I saw this tweet and immediately changed my mind on what I was going to share this morning. I thought this was a great reminder for all of us.
Be a grace dispenser today. There seems to be a desperate shortage of them in the world.

That’s a pretty incredible way to view yourself as you interact with others. A grace dispenser, a place that people feel the love of God, and not the condemnation of men. Sure sin has its consequences, but what we need to do is to walk along side of our fellow humans and point the way to the One. This whole idea sort of reminds me of this bit of interaction that a certain woman had with the son of God after she was caught in a ‘compromising position’
10 Then Jesus stood up again and said to the woman, “Where are your accusers? Didn’t even one of them condemn you?”
11 “No, Lord,” she said.
And Jesus said, “Neither do I. Go and sin no more.” John 8:10-11
Dispense it all day. After all, you have been given so much more than you can ever use!
